So as some of you might remember a while back I told you about the classes that I was going to teach at MiraCosta Community College in Oceanside. Well, we are done with two out of the three modules and I thought that I would share some of my student’s work with you. Most of them came with little to no knowledge of fondant, gumpaste, royal icings, etc. and just six classes later turned out stunning three tiered cakes.
Our first module was about the basics…filling, frosting, smoothing, and basic decorations. My teaching style is to show students a variety of methods and techniques for decorating, but then let them use their creative minds to come with the design. Of course I am there to help along the way, but I like them to let their inner cake artist come through. My favorite part of the modules are the last class when you see the finished cake that the student never thought they would be able to accomplish…everyone surprises themselves! So here are some photos from the first module…
Now onto the next module photos -wedding cakes/specialty cakes! After just three more classes these are some of the cakes that they designed. I was so excited to see their finished cakes and thought they did a great job! The next module is one sculpted specialty cakes!
I just had to put a close up of these adorable fondant love birds!
So drop these ladies a comment and tell them which cake you loved!
